Negative Space

What is negative space (explain this concept to a fourth grader that has never heard of it)
- The negative space is the dark space around the picture.  

Explain how you found negative space in 1. your cut out?, 2. in your stool drawing?

-In my cut out I saw my negative space by looking at the dark spaces and in my stool drawing I saw negative space in the empty spaces like where there was empty space between the chairs.

 Why does it help an artist to see in negative space?

- It helps them figure out what exactly what they need to draw. 

 Does seeing in negative space enhance drawings, why or why not

-Yes because it easier for me to see what I'm drawing.
